Description Alexander Larsson 2010-09-16 05:35:26 EDT
When launching qemu with -vga qxl and -spice and then connecting to it with the spice client gets me a 9x1 window with black in.

I tried replacing the vgabios-qxl.bin with the one from the spice qemu repo, and this got me working text mode, but when switching from text mode it seems it fails somehow, leaving a black window with a textmode cursor in the top left corner.
Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2010-09-16 06:20:18 EDT
I built the http://cgit.freedesktop.org/spice/qemu branches spice.v18 and spice.kvm.v18 against the F14 spice packages, and it worked fine.
Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2010-09-16 07:36:17 EDT
I figured it out, you must start spice with -global qxl.revision=2, because the default is otherwise 3. We need to fix that. The default should be 2.

bugfix

Oops, forgot to flip the default pci id from unstable to stable.  Attached patch fixes it.  Fix also pushed to the spice.14 branch @ freedesktop.

For the time being (until new package builds are available) you can add
'-global qxl.revision=2' to the qemu command line.
